A Word from
our Chairman,
Mark Miller

“My name is Mark Miller and I’m the chairperson of Michael’s Foundation. I’m also the owner of Al-Marah Arabian Horses, the host farm of the foundation. Al-Marah will be celebrating it’s 80th Anniversary in 2022, and we are extremely proud to host this wonderful program.
Our purpose is to use our horses to help veterans with PTSD heal by providing FREE veterans assistance in a proven program on our beautiful farm in Clermont, Florida.
My family will also celebrate the 75th Anniversary of using our horses in Equine Assisted Therapy. Our first project was to help deaf children learn that their challenges would not keep them from having wonderful, productive lives.
Since then, we have had firsthand experience with using Equine Assisted Therapy in a number of ways. We learned a great deal from one of our farm managers who lost both legs to a land mine in Viet Nam. He became a very good rider in addition to being a very good manager. We started some of the earliest Equine Assisted Therapy with Vets.
Over these 45 years, we have supported many programs that have concentrated both on Equine Therapy for PTSD and Addiction. The participants have taught us a great deal. Being horse people, we understand that every interaction is unique and that we can learn from everyone who we touch.
We also realize that our program is not stand alone, so we have included free help veterans with VA claim & legal services help.
We would welcome you to join our supportive community with anonymity and no expectations. I invite you to explore our website. If what you see interests you, come see us. There is no pressure to participate and there is never any cost to you”
